As far as I'm concerned, Johnnie To is the best Hong Kong action director since John Woo. Exiled is a spectacle of violence and pure awesomeness that keeps you entertained till the very end. In the beautifully choreographed climactic shoot out, all hell breaks loose in the time it takes a Red Bull can to fall to the floor in slow motion. As a Johnnie To film, I'd have to recommend this movie to any old school HK action fan that misses the days of Chow Yun Fat shooting up a tea house. Add heart, amazing camera movements, and excellent use of lighting and you have Exiled.
